I woke up super early to go to my first Body Pump class in 2014. I was proud of myself for getting out from under my covers on this 10 degree morning!!
There was a sub instructor who needed to make the class an “Express” body pump class. I was a little dissappointed to not fit in ALL muscle groups and abs, but nevertheless, it was a great start to the day and it felt good to get back into weight training.
I am going to get in the habit of either putting a check mark next to where I have written in a workout I’ve completed, and recording the duration of workouts in my planner.
As for this past weekend, it was a perfect balance of work + fun. On Friday after work, I went to my first VCU baskbetball game in years! Yes, I admit, I have not been to a VCU baskbetball game since before I was in college there. Yikes! I am not a sports fan at all, but I do like to watch basketball live. I think because I played basketball in middle school and high school, I am able to follow along more attentively.
It was a GREAT game! VCU won by 17 points! It was exciting to say the least and the student band and dance team were almost as entertaining to watch as the athletes themselves! One of my oldest friends since 1st grade, who was in town from Michigan, invited me to go to the game with her and her parents. They had an extra ticket, so I was very lucky to get to go.
I had to work on Saturday, but afterwards, my friend Sarah met me at my house and we drove over to my sister’s house for drinks and dinner with my nieces. The kids had their own drinks of course :). I was in bed by 10:30PM that night = win.
Sunday was a FULL day. After waking up on my own (without an alarm), I had a quick breakfast, enjoyed some coffee, and headed out to the gym. I had a great interval cardio workout; 20 min. on the stair master + 25 min. on the elliptical. I like changing it up like this because it breaks up the monotiny of using gym equipment when the weather isn’t great for being active outdoors.
After the gym, I went to the grocery store for my weekly shopping, followed by lunch. After lunch I power-cleaned by apartment. Dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, and scrubbing were all involved. It did feel good to kind of “clean” Christmas aftermath.
Once done cleaning, I showered up for Mass, followed by a hearty dinner and laundry session at my parent’s. Whoo…I’m exhausted just thinking about all of that!
I hope you all had a good weekend – cheers to a great week!
